Notorious McGregor showed old habits die hard as he pulled off a UFC move during a sparring session. The Irish superstar will switch the octagon for the ring when he makes his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather next month.
Notorious and Money are in the final weeks of training camp before the eagerly anticipated Las Vegas showdown.
As the mind-games ramp up, UFC’s McGregor posted images to his social media that appear to show the MMA star moving around his opponent after knocking him down looking for a ground-and-pound.
To add to the mind-games, McGregor added a picture of him flooring opponent Marcus Brimage during his UFC debut.
Meanwhile, Mayweather has claimed he will “knock McGregor the f–k out” when they fight.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. who retired from boxing with a spotless 49-0 record said: “Hey you – yeah you, it’s the one and only ladies and gentlemen, it’s Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.
“I’ve never been beat. NEVER. I’m knocking McGregor the f–k out.”
McGregor on the other hand recently compared himself to Batman after posting a video of himself in training.
“I am Batman.”
Ahead of next month’s fight, Adams said: “I can see the interest, for me, Floyd Mayweather’s going to win hands down.
“It’s just a show really for everybody, a bit of a performance, a bit of entertainment.
“It’s not something you get to see every day, a UFC fighter boxing a top class boxer, I definitely see Floyd Mayweather winning by knockout.
When it was mentioned to her if she would beat UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, Adams replied: “Yeah, definitely.
“Yeah definitely in the boxing ring, I don’t know about in the octagon, but in the boxing ring.”
Mayweather and McGregor meet at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Aug. 26 for their cross-sport super-fight.
